Traditional control application engineering techniques
tend to mix logical functionality with hardware access
methods. This greatly impedes reusability. Through separation
of the logical control application domain and the specific
hardware domain the MDA (Model-Driven Architecture) proposes
a solution to this problem. In the domain of embedded
systems development this approach brought a great advantage
in reducing the complexity of the development process. In this
paper we investigate if and how IEC 61499 can be utilized
as a DSL (Domain Specific Language) for control application
development in the domain of industrial automation systems.
We will show the potentials of our work by developing a sample
control application using the suggested methods.
